Summer Camp

We, the founders of the Indie Craft Experience, are so excited to share our love of art, craft and design with your kiddo during two different weeks of kid's craft camp at our studio in Candler Park. Please read the descriptions below. We have sessions broken out into three age groups to give everyone the maximum amount of attention. Rising K-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade are in the morning (they will do a few activities together but their curriculums will not be identical), and rising 6th-8th grade will be in the afternoon.
